Well I've joined the hangout and said I'm going. Now wondering what else I should be doing to get ready for it.

Hi everyone. Sorry I can't  connect, but I'm here.

Sorry about the technical difficulties Please post any questions that you would like answered?

Are there any questions about prepping for the cruise or what happens on arrival?

Having a trial run ready for Tuesday night, so now is the time to get your questions ready and come and join us!ready

Last week I asked my FB friends a question about drinks packages (yes/no) for the cruise, cost of water, whether to buy wine in package or by glass..or abstain for the trip. This might be something worth addressing for the interest of others in the hangout, along with dinner arrangements...time, venue and the like. This may all be coming in the package which is due to be posted soon (tomorrow?) but with time ticking it is worth knowing in advance.

It's so good to see some new faces joining this Community. If you are new to Google+ please consider editing your profile and adding some text that indicates your interest in genealogy or history. This is most useful to those who are considering following you.

Take a look at the profiles of some other group members to see what they have added.
